Heart and vascular rehabilitation

Our program combines exercise, education and support to help you restore and maintain your physical, psychological and vocational well-being.


Continued cardiac care

Our comprehensive services include diagnostic testing; a rehabilitation gym; the Anticoagulation Clinic (for monitoring your blood when taking blood-thinning medications); the Vein Center; and the Congestive Heart Failure Clinic.

    Our specialists are experienced in both Sudden Cardiac Arrest, when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, as well as Myocardial Infarction, which occurs when the blood flow to a certain part of the heart is blocked.

    12-lead EKG saves lives

    Before you even arrive at our Emergency Department (ED) by ambulance, our ED doctors and cardiac team already have a plan to stop your heart attack. That’s because Genesis Hospital, Genesis Community Ambulance and the local EMS community have partnered to equip Emergency Medical Services (EMS) vehicles with 12-lead EKG monitors so they can determine if you are having a heart attack before arriving at the hospital. This lead time enables the hospital’s heart team to be ready to intervene as soon as you arrive. They can literally stop a heart attack in its tracks.

    We can help you manage conditions that can lead to serious heart problems. These include high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and Metabolic Syndrome, which is a group of health problems that include excess fat around the waist, elevated blood pressure and blood sugar, high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol.

    When your heart is unable to properly pump the blood your body needs, you are suffering from heart failure. Our specialists will help you manage and treat your condition with lifestyle changes, medicines and when necessary, pacemakers and defibrillators.

    There are many types of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) that range from minor to life-threatening. Our team of electrophysiologists will evaluate the severity of your irregular heartbeat and recommend appropriate treatments based on your individual need.

    This narrowing or blockage of the arteries or veins in your legs, arms or torso is caused by plaque buildup. From evaluation and diagnosis through lifestyle changes and treatments, which may include drug therapy or a minimally invasive procedure, our general and interventional cardiologists will provide guidance to help you minimize the effects of these conditions.
